Max Planck Research Network for Synthetic BiologyMaxSynBio is the research network of the Max Planck Society for synthetic biology to which 20 research groups from 9 Max Planck Institutes, the Friedrich Alexander University and University Bordeaux contribute. Our goal is to understand the underlying principles of life by building cellular structures from scratch using inanimate biochemical building blocks, namely membranes, proteins and DNA. It is our hope that the insights will help us to understand the miracles of life but also foster new innovations for medicine and bioeconomy (Illustration by the courtesy of Kerstin Göpfrich).
